Brief Description

The Milwaukee VA Medical Center (VAMC) delivers primary, secondary, and tertiary medical care to eligible Veterans in 189 acute care beds and provides over 785,000 outpatient visits annually through an extensive outpatient program. The Community Living Center (long term care) units of 113 operating beds offer geriatric programming that preserves and enhances the individual's dignity. The 189 operating domiciliary beds are the locus of several innovative programs, including an Alcohol/Drug Rehabilitation Program, a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment Program, a General Rehabilitation and Treatment Unit for Veterans with chronic mental health problems, and a Transitional Program that helps Veterans to successfully gain employment and integrate back into the community. In addition, the domiciliary provides specialized treatment to meet the needs of Women Veterans and returning OEF/OIF/OND Veterans. All of Milwaukee’s programs provide healthcare for a portion of the 414,000 State veteran population (2014). The Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center is a part of Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 12, which includes the: Oscar G. Johnson VAMC in Iron Mountain, Michigan, Tomah VAMC in Wisconsin, William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin, the Lovell Federal Health Care Centers in North Chicago, IL, Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital in Chicago Illinois, Jesse Brown VAMC in Chicago and Danville, Illinois VAMC. Milwaukee has an active patient-centered care program (PCC) and will be completing a PCC Field Implementation Team (FIT) assessment this year.

The Wisconsin Corporation for Biomedical Research (WCBR) was founded in 1999 and has administered over 199 Studies. It currently does not administer Federally funded grants but is preparing to administer all non-NIH funded grants in the near future.
